On Friday my cable company is installing a dual tuner HD cable pvr. (hoping it records in HD, I forgot to ask) There is no charge for the first three months as they requested I review the thing. (I have been working on them for months. I think they made this offer to get me to stop my persistant asking.) I may want to burn a few programs onto dvd so my plan is to connect the pvr to my computer (I have a large slave hard drive) then burn it from there rather than getting a dvd recorder/burner. How would I make this connection into my pc and is there a recommended (preferably free) software program allowing me to edit commercials before burning? I know little about dvdr's. Is one type better than another for what I want to do?
